We stayed one night and expected to stay above the pub but on check in we were upgraded to the Lodge just a short walk away - the room was superb, very spacious and had everything you could want, the only issue was the large en-suite did not have a bath. Breakfast was excellent with a good selection - what... More

I stayed here on business. The rooms were of a very high standard, and very modern. The bar area was very nice, and we had a lovely meal there, looks like it can get busy there, so booking a table is a must I think when checking in. Breakfast was really nice, this will be my choice of hotel now... More

Stayed for one night with the wife on our anniversary and had a really nice meal and the breakfast wasnt bad either. Staff are very attentive and the room in the lodge was very well appointed and modern, although the walls are slightly thin.

What a fantastic B&B, from the cosy welcoming feeling of the Inn to the superb, spacious and spotlessly clean rooms, I couldn't of asked for anything better. Had a great sleep, the beds are very comfortable and the room was lovely and warm. Breakfast was of a really high standard with a good selection to choose from and the staff... More

Can't praise this hotel highly enough. From the minute we arrived until we left everything was superb. We stayed in a large room in "the lodge". A great deal of thought had gone into the design and facilities in the room. Loved the shower and fluffy bath robes. Food was excellent particularly the breakfast. How we managed to eat it... More

Recently stayed here for five nights and have to say the food on each night was excellent! The staff were friendly and chatty. My room was compact but very comfortable, the only thing the room lacked was a place to set my suitcase. I would have no problem recommending you stay here, even for the food alone, excellent!

Stayed earlier this week. It appeared that this hotel has recently been upgraded, as everything seems new and shiny. Lovely room, big, and roomy. The Power shower was just the best. Food excellent and plenty of it. I had the home made Steak & Kidney Pie. Delicious. And very reasonable too. Will be staying again if in the area.

isited the Craven Heifer on 21/11 for one night. What a great place. Obviously recently refurbished. We had a room in the Lodge. I phoned on the morning to ask for a room with a bath and it was no trouble getting it. Also asked for a bottle of bubbly in the room and low and behold it was there... More
